Iittala's delightful Nappula candleholder, designed by Matti Klenell, is a beautiful combination of classic and contemporary design. Managing to seem playful and elegant at the same time, Nappula's most recognizable detail is its sturdy, rounded base that creates a distinctive silhouette and ensures the candleholder stays upright. The story goes that Klenell found inspiration for Nappula's shape while visiting the Nuutajärvi glass museum in Finland, where he spotted a peculiar table with unusual, rounded legs.
After discontinuing the brass Nappula candleholders in 2017, Iittala reintroduced them in the fall of 2022. The brass candleholders are untreated, which means that they will slowly develop a gorgeous patina: their surface will turn darker and may even become green due to the patina. If you prefer the original sheen and colour, we recommend polishing the candleholders regularly.
